Wow!! It has been a long time since I made a post here. We have been waiting patiently for the new Category 2 Order to be officially announced and as of this time that order is still in process. It is my hope that the Category 2 Order will be published within the next week (or two). Category 2 is a very important element to Utah’s E-Rate efforts and we want to make sure we know what is in store with the new or modified Category 2 Application process.
In the meantime, if you have some Category 2 equipment needs then I hope you are developing your RFP as required. At this time, I would suggest waiting before adding any dates to your RFP or posting the required Form 470 as well. The decisions in the new Category 2 may affect your plans.
I’m planning to have an “EPC Administrative Window” webinar during the second week of December and a “Category 2 Update” webinar within two weekdays of the announcement of the new Category 2 Order. Stay tuned!!
